Sample FanDuel Lineups
FanDuel Lineup Configurations
Cash – Lynch is the safest quarterback option this week; I paired him with two of his WRs. Thomas is the safest running back and he also has the most upside. Thomas is also an extremely safe option, while Johnson and Myers bring a bit more risk/reward to the lineup.
GPP – I used a QB/2WR stack in the highest powered offense of the slate in Cinci. I also loaded the running backs with the two best options of the slate. Beals has good upside, as he’s coming off a huge game, but he also comes with quite a bit of risk. Last, Myers fit into the lineup and he has good touchdown upside.
Sample Draftkings Lineups
Draftkings Lineup Configurations
Cash – I paid up for Thomas, who has the best floor/ceiling combination of anyone on the slate. I also paid up for a Moore/Washington stack, as they both have great upside. Flowers loves running the ball, which is what I like out of a cheap quarterback. Green, Jones, and Thomas were all cheap players that tend to be fairly consistent, while Johnson and Myers are salary relief options that have a bit more upside.
GPP – I stacked Moore with two of his wide receivers as Cinci loves throwing the ball. I also stacked Shirreffs with his tight end as they both have quite a bit of upside. Thomas is far and away the top option at running back; I also used Johnson and Hine, who are cheaper options with high upside. Kurtz was the last piece, and he has good upside, but also comes with quite a bit of risk.
A very simple, but good start to DFS research is to look at the over/unders and odds. Obviously you want your players in games where Vegas believes the game will be high scoring and on winning teams, while your defenses should come from games they believe will be low scoring.
